Paul Henry Ramirez

orangespin, Paul Henry Ramirez

In the ‘Spin Series’ artist Paul Henry Ramirez addresses social and aesthetic issues with abstract paintings. Each painting is set on a turntable and the audience is invited to rotate the painting. Ramirez creates a collaborative relationship between viewer and artist by making his paintings interactive. This makes it possible for the viewer to find the ‘internal logics, tensions, and interactions that order the multiple parts of the constructed configurations’. I really enjoy the image of the painting as it is spinning, but also like the sexually implicit imagry that emerges from the paintings when they are static.

Alexis Semtner’s abstract paintings utilize optical illusion to distort the viewers spatial awareness.

I like the comforting and almost calming colors juxtaposed to the disconcerting Escher-esque environments, I think that the combination works well to create a world of constantly changing perceptions.
